Now that pricing is released, can someone from the team please summarize the differences between ALCS and Stratus?

Thanks,

Rick

Hi Rick,

The information on the differences between LCCS and Stratus are a bit buried -- apologize for that.  However, it's documented here on our Product FAQs:

What is the relationship between Adobe Stratus and Live Cycle Collaboration Services – they sound like the same product?
Adobe Stratus on Adobe Labs is a preview technology for Peer Assisted Networking using RTMFP for media and data delivery.  LCCS offers similar functionality to Stratus but has a commercial option with a pricing model that companies can use to integrate RTMFP into their business solutions today.  Most importantly, Stratus will not be a commercially available offering.  For more information about Stratus, visit http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/stratus/

What is RTMFP?
Real Time Message Flow Protocol (RTMFP) is a UDP-based protocol that enables P2P communication between Flash player or AIR clients.  The technology was introduced in Flash player 10 (November 2008).  More information about RTMFP can be found by visiting:
http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/stratus/


Does LCCS offer the same functionality as Adobe Stratus?
Yes.  LCCS offers the same technology as Stratus today for P2P audio/video streaming.  LCCS also offers a developer framework and hosted service designed for real-time collaboration as well as the ability and option to connect RTMP connections with RTMFP clients.

Thanks,

Fang
